So 1 week from today I will be taking a solo trip to visit the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. It is something I always wanted to do.  The trip will be sandwiched between 2 stints in Amsterdam.

I’ll post my itinerary soon but suffice to say I am so excited!

  • Christopher Hitchens – The portable atheist.

This was my summer reading list that I never got to.  I just started and am about to finish ” Smile When You’re Lying : Confessions of a Rogue Travel Writer” & hope to attack at least 2 of the others in the next month.

Going to visit my dad’s beach house on Topsail Beach for some nice R&R.  It’s not far from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.    Full days on the beach and BBQ at night with some fishing sprinkled in with liberal amounts of booze.  Many photo’s of the actual unit can be found here.  I know the owner, I can get you a good rate!

Must do’s:

  • Boogie Boarding like it’s 1992.
  • Water Gun fights like its 1988.
  • Getting some color for the 1st time this year.
  • Taking a much needed break from exercising.
  • Ghost Crab hunting.
  • Catch something while surf-casting.
  • Buying utter crap from 1 of 4 Dollar Store’s.

POSTS WILL BE MIA TILL I GET BACK! ENJOY!

Packing as we speak to catch a flight to North Carolina tomorrow.  Going to visit my dad’s beach house on Topsail Beach for some nice R&R.  It’s not far from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.  The shot above is from one of the deck’s.  It’s not gonna be a go fast / see a lot trip.  Full days on the beach and BBQ at night with some fishing sprinkled in with liberal amounts of booze.  Many photo’s of the actual unit can be found here.  I know the owner, I can get you a good rate!
